Sorbet: Health Friend or Foe?


May 07, 2010

The Claim Fruity flavors and low fat content give the impression that sorbet is a health food.

The Truth The store-bought version is often loaded with sweeteners, including high fructose corn syrup. And many contain "natural flavor," chemically processed from fruits and meats, which many scientists argue has not been studied adequately for safety.

Verdict Make a homemade version in minutes that's full of fiber and antioxidants. Just grab a food processor and combine 1 pound frozen blackberries, 1/2 cup fat-free or low-fat plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons sugar, and several tablespoons of water. Process until pureed. Enjoy or freeze for later. Makes 4 servings.
